  1. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hi, I am new to this forum. I live in bay area, california. I am considering between a gen 4 crv exl and a similar year subaru outback 2.5i limited. I have heard that the new 1.5T engine for the gen 5 crv is not super reliable. Can anyone share the thoughts/experiences on the 1.5T/2.4 engine...
  2. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    After we recently gave our daughter our 2006 CRV, I had originally planned on buying a '16 or '17 CRV. Was a no-brainer. We had a '96 Civic before that. Never had any issues with either of our Hondas. But, lately I've been drawn to the Subaru Outback. Friends of ours traded their 18 month...
  3. Greetings & Introductions
    Just on here as I prepare to make a purchase... I am looking forward to trying something a little different. Here in Northern California the outback is quite popular due to our varied road conditions, but we have begun to see more CRVs on the road. I guess we will add one more. Wish me luck.

    I am interested in your comparisons/contrasts if you also considered a Subaru Outback and/or a Forester. The OB is a station wagon with AWD, the Forester is a small SUV, so probably more similar to the AWD CRV than the Outback is. Prices are fairly close on all three.
  7. Shopping & Test Driving
    Hello, I currently have an 05 Subaru Outback XT and after a year of problems with it, I have decided to sell it for something more reliable to get me through College. I live in Colorado and need something with 4WD or AWD. I am thinking about an 05-09 CRV with under or around 100k miles. What...
